Signs You Need Roof Replacement After Hail Damage

Often overlooked, many homeowners tend to think that minor hail damage is not something to be concerned about. However, it is important to remember that even the smallest of dents and cracks can lead to serious issues with your roof if left untreated. To protect your home from further damage, our team has compiled a list of signs that you should look out for when inspecting your roof after a hail storm:

  •       Dents: Since hail is made up of solid sheets of ice, it can leave dents on your roof that may not be visible to the naked eye. Especially if you are not familiar with what to look at and where to look for signs of damage, it is important to have a professional inspect your roof for dents and other damages.
  •       Damp Spots in the Attic: The ice from hail can penetrate your roof and cause water damage, leading to leaks and damp spots in the attic. If you notice any wet patches in your attic, then most likely your roof has sustained hail damage and needs to be replaced.
  •       Vent and Shingle Damages: Unlike snow and rain, hail can cause extensive damage to your vents and shingles. If you notice that any of your vents or shingles are cracked, then it is likely that the hail has caused significant damage that should be addressed immediately.
  •       Age of Your Roof: Now this not only applies to hail damage but also to all types of roof damage. If your roof is more than 20 years old, it may be time for a complete replacement regardless of the amount of damage done by the storm.

If you think that your home has sustained any kind of hail damage and needs to be replaced, contact Bulldog Builders today.

Why You Should Replace Your Roofing System

Just like any other problem, failing to address or fix hail damage can lead to further damage to your home. Neglecting these issues can make them worse and cause extensive water damage that can be expensive to repair.

  •       Rotting of the Wood: If the hail damage is left untreated, it can lead to water seeping into your roof and rotting the wooden structure.
  •       Mold and Mildew Issues: When water penetrates the roof, mold, and mildew start to grow in that damp environment. Not only does this cause issues with air quality but also lead to further damage.
  •       Damaged Insulation: Hail can also damage or puncture the insulation of your roof, leading to an increase in energy bills.
  •       Damage to Furniture and Appliances: Dampness from the attic can eventually drip down to your furniture, carpets, and appliances in the house. If you don't have any proper insulation, this can lead to irreparable damage and cause you to replace them all.
